Weed-Infused Coffee Pods, Anyone?

What pot smoker hasn't enjoyed a nice bowl and a cup of coffee? Well, now you can get your high in your coffee, and your THC-infused coffee in disposable Keurig coffee pods.


The marijuana edibles—and potables—market is exploding as more and more states embrace either medical marijuana or full-blown pot legalization. Marijuana-infused coffee has been a thing for a while, but now, thanks to the ganjapreneurs at Brewbudz, it's available in those handy, disposable pods. 

Brewbudz is offering a mixture of Arabica coffee beans and 10 milligrams of THC, which is enough to get a novice user pretty well stoned, but probably beneath the notice of veteran stoners. Hardcore heads would likely have to gulp down two or three or even four cups to get their buzz on.

Not only is pot-infused coffee tasty and stony, it's good for you, Brewbudz says.

"Ingesting or consuming hot beverages is a very healthy alternative to smoking which has a high impact on the health of your lungs," says the website. "Best of all, our product is lifestyle integrated which is important to a regular consumer."

Not sure what "lifestyle integrated" is, but okay.

Maybe Brewbudz is referring to the fact that it matches stimulant caffeine with stimulating "sativa-dominant" weed, the kind that gives users that "up" high as opposed to the narcotized couch-lock associated with indica strains.

Brewbudz currently offers a West Coast Roast, in both caffeinated and decaffeinated versions. (Do they offer the decaf infused with no-THC ditch weed?) And they say they're working on French Vanilla and Hazelnut, too. They also offer a weed-infused Decadent Dark Chocolate cocoa and a Breakfast Blend tea, with Green Tea and Chamomile coming down the pike.

Brewbudz now has a West Coast Roast available, but is working on expanding to include French Vanilla and Hazelnut as well. The coffee comes in both caffeinated and decaf.

And for all you environmentally conscious caffeine and cannabis consumers, rest assured that your old, tired pods aren't going to end up in a landfill, like Keurig's. These pods are compostable. 

Brewbudz is rolling out its product line between now and March 2017 in legal marijuana states.
